display query output in columns and rows

How can I display the output in a table so that it's 4 down with 3 rows across or 4 down with 4 rows across:

<cfset CurrentPage=GetFileFromPath(GetTemplatePath())>
<cfparam name="PageNum_myquery" default="1">
<cfquery name="myquery" datasource="dsn">
SELECT *
FROM listings
where status = 'active'
order by MyIdentity asc
</cfquery>
<cfset MaxRows_myquery=4>
<cfset StartRow_myquery=Min((PageNum_myquery-1)*MaxRows_myquery+1,Max(myquery.RecordCount,1))>
<cfset EndRow_myquery=Min(StartRow_myquery+MaxRows_myquery-1,myquery.RecordCount)>
<cfset TotalPages_myquery=Ceiling(myquery.RecordCount/MaxRows_myquery)>
<cfset QueryString_myquery=Iif(CGI.QUERY_STRING NEQ "",DE("&"&XMLFormat(CGI.QUERY_STRING)),DE(""))>
<cfset tempPos=ListContainsNoCase(QueryString_myquery,"PageNum_myquery=","&")>
<cfif tempPos NEQ 0>
  <cfset QueryString_myquery=ListDeleteAt(QueryString_myquery,tempPos,"&")>
</cfif>
<cfoutput query="myquery" startrow="#StartRow_myquery#" maxrows="#MaxRows_myquery#">#short_note#<!--- <img src="props/#photo_main#" width="648" height="6" border="" alt=""> ---><br><br></cfoutput>

is this what you mean?
<TABLE>
<cfoutput query="myquery" startrow="#StartRow_myquery#" maxrows="#MaxRows_myquery#">
<cfif currentrow mod 3 is 1><tr></cfif>
      <td align="left">#short_note#<!--- <img src="props/#photo_main#" width="648" height="6" border="" alt=""> ---></td>
<cfif currentrow mod 3 is 0></tr></cfif>
</cfoutput>
</TABLE>

this will display 3 columns
just change the 3 to 4 to display 4 columns

 I think you mean for the values to go down first, the across?  Like this...

 1  5    9
 2  6   10
 3  7   11
 4  8

If so, this code will do it....

You need to replace "myQuery" with your query name and "ColumName" with the column you want to display.  Also, change the numColumns to how ever many you want across, the code will do the rest.

<cfset variables.NumColumns = 5>

<cfset variables.numberOfRows = ceiling(myQuery.recordCount/variables.NumColumns)>
<cfoutput>
Create Matrix: #variables.NumColumns# Cols x #variables.numberOfRows# Rows<br>
<table align="center" border="1">
 <cfloop index="RR" from="1" to="#variables.numberOfRows#">
   <TR>
   <cfloop index="CC" from="1" to="#variables.NumColumns#">
       <cfset variables.recordCounter = (variables.numberOfRows * (CC - 1)) + RR>
     <td>
       <cfif variables.recordCounter gt 0 and variables.recordCounter le myQuery.recordCount>
         <cfset variables.theValue = myQuery['ColumnName'][variables.recordCounter]>
         #variables.theValue#
       <cfelse>
         &nbsp;
       </cfif>
       </td>
   </cfloop>
   </tr>
 </cfloop>
 </tr>
</table>
</cfoutput>
